Grace Period Extension and Tenant Protections as the Moratorium Ends
Por: Oregon Law Center & Legal Aid Services of Oregon
The statewide moratorium on evictions for nonpayment and without cause ends on June 30, 2021. But a new law, Senate Bill 282, says that renters have more time to pay back rent, fees or other charges that came due during the moratorium period. From July 1, 2021 through February 28, 2022 , landlords cannot evict tenants for rent owed between April 1, 2020 and June 30, 2021. The new law contains additional renter protections such as relaxed limitations on guest occupancy, protection from negative credit and eviction history during the pandemic, and protection from retaliation.
